Check out the Hydra webcam (link here
) sometime at night. I just checked it out tonight....it looks very cool to me, the hues at night in the snow! Plus it's well lit at night too...

Perhaps is the light reflecting off the snow that makes it look so bright?
I know the street outside my house isn't exactly dark, but now that there's a ton of snow out there, it looks so much brighter due to the snow.
Besides how cool it looks in the snow, I'm continually amazed at how good of an angle the webcam gets of Hydra. I hope they keep the webcam up even after the ride opens. It'd be cool to see webcam shots of the train on the track. I know it wouldn't be a movie stream, but still.. :)
EDIT: correcting the spelling from my psycho keyboard's double letters.. need to learn to slow down when I type! :)

That image is actually several days old... the webcam has broke once again and is stuck on that image. Should be fixed soon though. There's much more snow covering it now ;).

Yes I know it's the snow and light reflection, I knew that from the start...I'm just saying I love the blue color it gives off onto the track...can't wait to see an updated image!

possibly the big storm shifted the cam?....I know i was having fun over the weekend with yahoo messenger and my cam showing people the storm outside my window...
Hydra definitely looked cool with the blueish hues from the reflection off the snow...

Ha! Looks more like a shot of Allentown's Hamilton Blvd more than it does a rollercoaster cam.

aww.. I missed it - they must have fixed the angle, because I see the cobra, lift, etc. (although it's *REALLY* fuzzy at the moment.)
Tuesday, January 25, 2005 9:05 AM
Yeah they did fix it...they also must have zoomed the camera in as well, because the view is much better, much bigger, much clearer...yay!

OK, what the hell is that twisted track leading up to the cobra roll???

Going into the cobra roll is a large corkscrew.
Coming out is an 'S' shaped airtime hill.
Tuesday, January 25, 2005 11:33 AM
Wow...that is...unique. never seen a corkscrew quite that big!

Can't Wait! Wait Where is the Jojo Roll at?

Its the inversion before the 180 degree turn to the lift.

Now, of course, they shove the camera way back...bastards! Why do they keep adjusting and adjusting? Bring it back to the old setting! ;)

Is there a reason for them finishing the ride so early? The trains are already on the track.

Yeah, it's to allow for construction delays to make sure that 1. The ride is done on time and 2. They get as much testing as possible. If they shoot for march and get a bad winter, it might not be done until mid april, allowing like a week or 2 for testing. On the other hand, shoot for January, and let the snowflakes fall where they may. (although hopefully not IN May.. brrrr.. :) )
